I'm not dead yet!
I know. You've all been wondering.
I was deep in the rabbit hole but I think I'm mostly out now.
As usual, you guys are the best, sharing your kind words and support.
I got a bunch of love from my family too. It's helped a lot.
It's not that I'm broken-hearted about the contest. I was certainly disappointed. I guess I was more upset with the Dear John email from HQN afterward. The more I thought about it though, my stuff really never did fit their parameters. If I had been honest with myself I never should have entered to begin with. I guess I was just looking for a quick fix to my eternal slump and thought the contest was it.
So, onward and upward.
Technically I'm not supposed to send out my book for a few months or something and also it's a terrible time of the year to get noticed so I guess waiting until January would be the best idea.
You guys know how I love waiting.
I hope y'all had a very nice Thanksgiving holiday.
We had two full days of Thanksgiving plus my son's 7th birthday and the lighting of the Christmas tree in our village. Then we went to the Christmas parade in NJ followed by a pancake breakfast a few towns over. It was a whirlwind couple of days.
I am thankful for so many things but mainly for my family and all my friends, near and far.
